The Fashion of Hookers On Screen

Make no mistake! Fashion on screen plays a huge role on fashion in the real world. In this spirit, the New York Times has just published a fascinating look at the impact fashions worn by prostitutes in film and television.

The article, by Ruth La Ferla, is a great and visually-rich expose of how haute couture has adapted and adopted styles from characters in shows and films as diverse as Blade Runner 2049, Pretty Woman, and The Deuce.

 

Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and Nicki Minaj in.. Well.. Whatever!

I love the article and I love the analysis of the subtleties. Everything from certain types of furs to garter belts and stockings is analyzed.

It’s a must read!
